The Festival of Marketing is go! 
 
2500+ delegates already booked and speakers from brands including Auto Trader,, B&Q, Channel 4, O2, TFL, Microsoft , British Gas, Barclays, News UK, Virgin Media, Heathrow and many more (not to mention a university challenge charity pub quiz hosted by me tonight!)

The Festival of Marketing is set to be the biggest gathering of industry experts in London. Not all social-focused but there is some fantastic content so should be of interest to everyone here - You can grab a last minute ticket from http://ecly.co/1bojnLH - see you there!

The Olympus Mons mountain on Mars is so tall and yet so gently sloped that, were you suited and supplied correctly, ascending it would allow you to walk most of the way to space.

Mars has a big, puffy atmosphere, taller than ours, but there’s barely anything to it at that level. 30 Pascals of pressure, which is what we get in an industrial vacuum furnace here on Earth. You may as well be in space.

Imagine that. Imagine a world where you could quite literally walk to space.

Story
Tagline
I like to say things and eat stuff.
Introduction
Hi! I'm Matt. I'm quite tall. It's just one of my many talents.

I'm the Head of Social for Econsultancy, and occasionally a writer, speaker, singer, guitarist and idiotic buffoon.

Sometimes, people pay me to do this sort of thing.

Eventually I'm hoping they'll pay me enough to open a small cocktail bar in a quiet mountain town. My vesper martini is very, very good indeed.

So yes, I basically mess about on here all day for a living (and yes, I love my job).
Bragging rights
I'm the second most influential person on the web according to The Times Social List, or I was for about four seconds in 2011 (Which still counts if you ask me).I'm also a former retro-arcade Pac-man world champion. I have six albums and a book out there somewhere. About four people have bought them. .
